Chrome extensions - fascinating

Mon Nov 07, 2016 5:23 pm

So... Chrome extensions.

Having spent so much time working on the site and projects primarily in VB.Net I've never really paid much attention to Chrome development. However, after messing about (as you do) in Visual Studio I discovered a Chrome extension template and I'm actually amazed at how 'simple' they are to make. Extensions are basically webpages using a combination of HTML and Java-Script to display/do whatever you need the extension to do.

I'm now find myself quite fascinated with the whole prospect of creating my own. I'm going to experiment a bit and see what I can throw together and test them out.

I know mikethedj4 has a lot of experience in extensions and has created some amazing apps like KodeWeave but has anyone else had any Chrome extension experience or perhaps already published in the web store?

If you want to have a go then here are some resources for you to look at:

The visual studio template: http://www.c-sharpcorner.com/UploadFile ... udio-2013/
Extension samples: https://developer.chrome.com/extensions/samples


Time to have some fun and learn something new :)

I did some experiments but hadn't done anything special.

You can use WebDGap to convert any website to a chrome application/extension same with desktop apps too. (Haven't done any development in several months. Focused on studies, my next step is to make it run on mobile devices)

You can watch this video to learn how to use WebDGap.

Here's just a few examples from people enjoying the application...
